Super Bowl snow? Feb 2 in Newark hasn't seen serious snow in 80 years
Talking about a snowy Super Bowl is chic, but it hasn't snowed on Feb 2 in Newark in 80 years of record keeping.
It's a narrative that will only get stronger as February 2, 2014 gets closer. Will it snow for the Super Bowl?
According to a scientist at Rutgers, probably not.
Dr. David Robinson, a climatologist and professor of geography says it's typically in the low-to-mid 30s on that day. Here's another fun fact from the good professor: "we've never had a big snowstorm on February 2nd, and this is looking back at 80 years of record for Newark."
However on Feb. 4, 1961 there was 15 inches of snow. So it can happen, obviously.
So there's a chance we media folk may be able to keep warm beating the hell out of the Peyton Manning cold-weather narrative.
